of the health care law. this is an hour 45 minutes. [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] >> good afternoon. i called this meeting to order. as we are all well aware the health care law requires businesses that employ 50 or more full-time or full-time equivalent employees to offer health insurance or pay an employer mandate penalty or a tax. a critical issue is the definition of employee but equally important is the issue of which and how many employees are it should be to to the business. the answer may be simple for one business with a single owner however when an individual shares ownership of multiple entities or when a business has multiple owners the answer is less clear. today we will examine the process of determining whether businesses are considered single or multiple entities under the health care law, which requires business owners to aggregate employees and could subject the business to the obamacare employer mandate. according to the national federation of independent business, 39% of small businesses with 20 or more employees on at least 10% of one or more other bus

is to interpret the law that this body passed and the law is very clear that there has to be a nexus between the fee and the impact of the development, so i think that to subjecting that somehow we can do anything beyond that is really not an accurate description of what our role is, and i personally think that in the en, it's not a good thing for an appellant to come before a body arguing something that in the end is not within the confines of what the law allows, and i think that creates a sense of false hope and i don't think it's fair to an appellant to go through a process that ultimately doesn't really lend itself to do what is being promised it could do. that's not the reality of what the law says, and if we want to change the law, then let's change the law, but i don't think it's fair to go through this process when we know that the law does not allow us to do what we're claiming it can do. >> unless there's any further discussion, colleagues, supervisor kim has a motion in front of us, madam clerk, call the roll. >> on the motion to approve item 19, table 20, 21, supervisor breed, b

together. part of that is the practical access to the insurance coverage, which the law, unfortunately, does not guarantee for the small employers. are there planning opportunities? yes. we see small employers trying to use those to avoid compliance with the law? not yet. i think part of the lack of awareness is a little bit of a reaction to the delays that have occurred. believe there have been delays and those delays will continue. for smaller businesses, there is a sentiment that the rules for the larger employers were delayed, which they were until 2015. however, for the smaller businesses they smell many of them on the brunt of the expensive renewals this year. they offer an early renewal option to renew their policy this december and to delay the cost impacts of health reform. invariably they have taken that offer. they have basically kicked the issue down the road for another year. we will hear more about that next fall. it is a matter of the law providing access to coverage with no pre-existing conditions. it is not by any means affordable, even for the small businesses. the sm
